Required watching for anyone with an opinion on Iran
15 August 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Iran seems to be the current focus of the US. The bulls eye in the 'axis of evil'. While the war drums are beating, the West is being convinced by the major political players that Iran has an almost pathological need to pretty much guarantee its own destruction. Iran according to them has never been threatened, and the US never interferes with the political processes of countries in the Middle East.

'Iran and The West' should be compulsory viewing for anyone who has an opinion on the current tensions between the US and Iran. It is almost sad to see matters being escalated over time due to mistrust and political mechanisations. Iran is far more liberal, has a rich cultural heritage, and has much more in common with the US than countries like Saudia Arabia, Qatar and Bahrain, yet the Petrodollar dictates that the US sides with Saudia Arabia which is the center of ideological Islamic fundamentalism rather than Iran, where fundamentalism only survives due to the standoff perpetuated by the US at the behest of Saudi Arabia and Israel.

'Iran and The West' boasts a list of political heavyweights including former Presidents, Foreign Secretaries, Minsters and Ambassadors with dialogue switching between various people to prove the authenticity of the narrative.

Political documentaries do not get much better than this.
